Washers made from non-metallic materials offer a range of benefits when compared to their metal counterparts — from lower cost to superior performance and longer life. That’s why many leading companies get washers for use in a broad variety of applications from Cords Canada.
Washers of all kinds
Cords Canada supplies all types of washers. The selection includes many material, size and design options. Many of the company’s products are made from non-metallic materials such as nylon, PVC, Teflon, neoprene, silicone, fibre, rubber and sponge. The company also stocks a range of different washer types, including flat washers, shoulder washers, finishing washers and lock seal washers.
Benefits of non-metallic washers
The non-metallic washers that Cords Canada supplies offer better performance than metallic washers for several reasons. Firstly, some non-metallic washer materials feature very low surface friction, which results in smoother, longer-lasting performance. These materials are also non-abrasive, so mating parts are never galled or scratched. In addition, non-metallic washers can also incorporate a solid lubricant for internal lubrication. This provides a perfect solution in applications where it is difficult or undesirable to use external lubrication.
Another major advantage of non-metallic washers is their excellent sealing capabilities. They can be used to create reliable seals in even the most unfavourable conditions because they compress when under pressure. Other benefits of non-metallic washers include low weight, corrosion resistance, noise reduction, wear resistance and insulating properties.
